About D. Carnegie & Co
D. Carnegie & Co is a real estate company focusing on residential properties
within the Stockholm region and other growth areas. The Company’s business
concept is to own and manage its real estate portfolio and to gradually
refurbish apartments in connection with the natural turnover of tenants. This
can take place quickly and cost-efficiently due to the Company’s established
refurbishment method, BosystemTM. The refurbishment model is popular with both
tenants and the Swedish Union of Tenants (Sw. Hyresgästsföreningen) as the
apartments are attractively refurbished without any tenants being forced to
vacate the premises against their will.
At the beginning of 2014, Stendörren transferred its residential properties to
D. Carnegie & Co and thereby became the owner of a real estate portfolio
consisting of residential properties in Stockholm’s growth areas. As of 31
December 2013, the market value amounted to SEK 2,929 million and the total
rental value was estimated to amount to SEK 287 million per year. The financial
leasing rate is high and none of the properties are vacant. D. Carnegie & Co’s
real estate portfolio is situated in the Stockholm region. D. Carnegie & Co is
listed on NASDAQ OMX First North since 9 April 2014. The Company’s Certified
Adviser is G&W Fondkommission.
